Is It Possible To Receive Workers
Though both of these programs can help an individual financially, there are some differences. SSDI, which is run by the Social Security Administration, is a federal program. Workers Compensation is run by the state that you live in, so it varies depending on the state. In short, you are able to receive both at the same time. SSA will normally adjust the amount you receive from them based on your workers compensation. A general rule that is used in this case is the total amount someone receives from workers compensation added to your SSD benefits cannot be more than 80 percent of what you make when you are working.
